Have you ever imagined yourself conquering a foreign place alone? It does sound a bit odd but it is getting mainstream right now because of a wide array of effects it can create to an individual. Seeing beautiful sights, trying out different cuisines, exploring a foreign country’s all by yourself can be viewed differently but, in fact, is very interesting. Men and women of this generation travel alone for many advantageous reasons. These reasons can lead to self-improvement, self realization and even to happiness. To help you understand how, here are 7 main reasons why travelling alone at least once in your lifetime should be in your bucket list.
1. You are in Full Control with Time and Money
When you travel with a group, you need to consider their capabilities before all of you can decide what happens during your travel. With solo travel, you can create your own time and money table as you want. You can also change plans easily without having to bear consequences. This means that you can do whatever and whenever you want during the trip.
2. You will gain New Friends
In travelling to different places, you will get to know about their culture and, of course, meet new people. When you travel on your own, there will be a lot of talking to strangers. You need them in order to get through your trip. Not only that they can help you, you will also get to mingle and gain new friends. Gaining friends is one part of a travel that is very fulfilling.
3. It Lifts your Self Esteem
There are many things that can build your confidence. One is looking always presentable and having a powerful travel wardrobe and by the way, luxury clothes from Humble and Rich, are nothing but perfection! Aside from breath-taking outfits, when you travel alone it brings you to situations wherein you only have yourself to rely on. You will be exposed to situations wherein you are not totally comfortable with. These situations will definitely mould your self confidence.
4. No Compromising
This is one advantage of going on a trip all alone. You get to be your own boss. No one can affect your itinerary and you can go to all the places you want at any time without worrying that another person might find your plans unnecessary or inconvenient. When you are alone, you can plan depending solely on what you prefer and what is convenient for you. Such an ease! This means that you can focus only on yourself and what you want.
5. Heightens your Sense of Responsibility
Travelling alone is definitely not safe. There are many unexpected situations that could happen to you especially that you are alone in a place that you are not familiar with. When you are travelling alone, you get to be responsible with yourself and your belongings. This will help you learn a lot of things especially in observing preventive measures and other precautions. You must think ahead of situations in order to avoid any forms of incidents and also accidents. Remember, you only have yourself to rely on.
6. Leads to Many Self Discoveries
A lot of discoveries will be uncovered in going to a trip all alone. You will discover many things especially in yourself as a person. You will get to know yourself more, your strengths and your weaknesses. Trust me when I say, these self discoveries will help you improve yourself especially because you will know how to meddle with your personal strengths and weaknesses.
7. Boosts Happiness
I know what you are thinking right now, how can you be happy when you are all alone? The idea of travelling alone is all new to you and once you experience it you will know exactly why it can contribute to happiness. It is true what they say that you can never be fully happy unless you experience being alone. When you are alone, you learn many things about yourself. These experiences will make you accept who you really are and once you accept yourself genuinely, happiness comes after.
Solo travelling is one of the things that you should try especially in this modern era wherein there seems to be a lot of shortcuts to all of things. When you travel alone, you will crack out of your comfort zone. You will learn a lot of things in yourself and, generally, in life. This leads to a better and improved version of yourself.
